China Film Archive
To mark the UNESCO World Day of the Audiovisual Heritage, China Film Archive will screen a classic Chinese film, titled Little Heroine (1939) the 27 October at 20:45, under the theme of “Archives at
Risk: protecting the world’s identities” this year. It was directed by Chinese director Zhang Shichuan
and Zheng Shaoqiu, starring Gong Qiuxia, Hu Rongrong, Feng Huang, Gong Jianong and Zhou Qi
and presented by Guohua Film Studio.
With a faithful audience to CFA’s Art Cinema cultivated for the past five years, CFA becomes one of
the most popular places to go after work and at weekends for film fans. On each UNESCO World Day
of Audiovisual Heritage every year, we will publicize the theme of audiovisual heritage preservation
again and arouse their consciousness for film protection. Mr. Sha Dan, CFA’s programmer will also
give a brief introduction for the audiences on the background of the film’s director and its production
The reason why we chose this film to screen on UNESCO World Day of the Audiovisual Heritage is
because it was received from Hong Kong Film Archive with the exchange documentary of Shanghai
Battle during the Anti-Japanese War from CFA on 11 May 2015. Since this film is lost at mainland China
for long, and by chance we knew that it belonged to HKFA’s collection, we initiated this film exchange
to enrich each other’s film collection several years ago, and finally it was realized this year. Though its
artistic value cannot be exaggerated, its social and cultural values between archival exchanges and
international communications are significant enough not to be undermined.
We hope that there’ll be more chances in the future to bring the orphan films back to its home countries with our joint efforts among FIAF members.

Jugoslovenska Kinoteka
Dyordye Dyoka Bogdanovich was born in 1860 in Belgrade in a lawyer’s family.
In 1905, he takes over the Kasina Hotel, renovates the building and became one of the first permanent
cinemas in the city, and renamed it in 1913 to Kasina cinema. The First Balkan War, came from October
1912 and ended in May 1913 Since the Serbian victories in the Battles of Kumanovo and Bitola were not
captured on film tape by Serbian filmmakers, Bogdanovich decided to do it himself, as a re-enactment.
His ambition was to produce films that would celebrate the Serbian armed forces and honour their
fight for freedom. Bogdanovich then contracted two camera operators from the company Pathé in
their Vienna based office to capture “all the important moments from the past war”. In the midst
of the preparations, the Second Balkan War broke out, this time between Serbia and Bulgaria. Dyoka
Bogdanovich now had the chance to film real life battles, but due to bureaucracy he was unable to
leave for the front line immediately. He received the first material from his operators, whose names
remain unknown until this day. He went on to capture on film all the important moments of the war
that has ended in 1913. He filmed battles, hospitals, devastated villages, war crimes victims, life and
work of soldiers on the battlefield. All this resulted in films In Front of Kyustendil, The Battle of Kiselitsa, The Battle of Zhedilovo, HRH Crown Prince Aleksandar at Crni Vrh, Colonel Nedić in Battle - Battle
of Crni Kamen, Third Army Headquarters and other. Upon his return from the battlefield, he continues
to produce films like: 13th Cavalry Division Under the Command of Prince Arsen Karadyordyevich, King
Peter I at the Cathedral Church on Thanksgiving Service, The Return of Pashich, Venizelos and other
Delegates After Signing the Treaty of Bucharest, The Gramberg Hospital, Bulgarian Prisoners of War in
the Belgrade Fortress, Life of Serbian Soldiers in Banyica Army Camp, The Return of Serbian Victors, all
made in late July and in August 1913. Bogdanovich continued also to produce films, such as: Pictures
of Belgrade, Arrival of the Recruits, Recruits of the Vardar Regiment Take the Soldier’s Oath, Laying the
Cornerstone of the St. Sava Seminary, Races at the New Racetrack, Celebrating Vidovdan, Funeral of
Nicolai Hartvig and other.
With the sudden break out of World War I, Dyoka felt the urge to participate in the war efforts of his
country. Tchernoff and Bogdanovich recorded the so-called Syrmia Operation filming the entrance of
Serbian forces into Zemun and some Syrmian villages as well as the retreat afterwards. They handed
over the films to the Serbian Supreme Headquarters due to the justified fear from Austro-Hungarian
retaliation on Serbs after the retreat. The Austro-Hungarians never got the film, but they retaliated
against the civilians anyway. However, the later fate of the films remain unknown to this day. It is
believed that the whole stock was destroyed during the retreat of the Supreme Headquarters in 1915.
Dyoka Bogdanovich moved to Niš, the wartime capital of Serbia where he was badly hurt and died
in Niš at the end of 1914. His wife took over the care for his films, she treasured the collection, hiding
it from all potential threats during World War I and World War II. In 1928, the films emerged from the
dark for a brief moment, when Josip Novak made his version of The Balkan War, and then sunk back
until the early 1980s.
Gathered here for the first time, materials from the Bogdanovich family collection, remaining parts of
Josip Novak films and the lost footage recently found in Austrian Film Archive in Vienna, finally can tell
the story about the great patriotic and art work as well as the legacy of this unjustly forgotten great
Serbian man - Dyoka Bogdanovich.
Deutsche Kinemathek
Chance Kurzfilm Sonderprogramm anlässlich des UNESCO‐Welttages des
audiovisuellen Erbes 27 Oktober 2015 um 20 Uhr im Zeughauskino
Seltene Berlin‐Filme, Tonbilder, polnische Avantgarde, Trickfilme: Am diesjährigen UNESCO‐Welttag des audiovisuellen Erbes, dem 27 Oktober, präsentieren die Deutsche Kinemathek und das
Zeughauskino wiederentdeckte und restaurierte historische Kurzfilme.
Das von Jeanpaul Goergen kuratierte und vorgestellte Programm umfasst Kurzfilm‐Raritäten aus
100 Jahren Filmgeschichte, darunter der Industrie‐Werbefilm Ein Gang durch die moderne Oberst‐
Fabrik (D 1932) mit außergewöhnlichen Trickaufnahmen, der dank der digitalen Umkopierung der
Deutschen Kinemathek erstmals wieder zu sehen ist. Weitere Filmkopien stellen das Arsenal – Institut
für Film und Videokunst (Berlin), das Bundesarchiv‐Filmarchiv (Berlin), das Deutsche Filminstitut –
DIF (Frankfurt am Main) sowie das EYE (Amsterdam) zur Verfügung.
Um 1900 locken vor allem dokumentarische Bilder in die ersten Filmvorführungen.
Im Niederländischen Filmarchiv sind einmalige Ansichten aus Deutschland und Berlin überliefert.
Zehn Jahre später bilden „Tonbilder“ die Sensation: kurze Musikstücke, die im Playbackverfahren für
die Laufzeit einer Schellackplatte aufgenommen und bei der Wiedergabe synchronisiert werden. Drei
Berliner Sujets demonstrieren die Leistungsfähigkeit der digitalen Bild‐ und Tonbearbeitung.
In dem viragierten Fragment Schatten der Nacht (1912) zeigt Harry Piel sensationelle Verfolgungsjagden mit Auto und U‐Bahn quer durch Berlin. Zwei in Berlin gedrehte Trickfilme von 1932 – darunter (s.o.) Ein Gang durch die modern Oberst‐Fabrik – bezeugen die große Könnerschaft des später
in den USA berühmt gewordenen Ungarn George Pal. 1932 realisieren die polnischen Avantgardisten
Stefan und Franciszka Themerson das Filmexperiment Europa nach dem gleichnamigen futuristischen Gedicht von Anatole Stern. In dem Kulturfilm Eine Schlagader der Großstadt (1956) lauschen wir
der faszinierenden Geräuschwelt der Berliner U‐Bahn. 1966 lässt Gusztáv Hámos seine Protagonistin
durch die Geschichte Berlins wandern (Berlin retour), während Juliane Henrich in .Spurnahme (2008)
jenes Gelände in Berlin‐Mitte inspiziert, auf dem jüngst die Zentrale des Bundesnachrichtendienstes
errichtet wurde.

National Film and Sound Archive
On Tuesday 27 October 2015, the NFSA hosts a one-day Symposium which will deal with “Digital Directions: Archiving into the Future“ to coincide with the UNESCO World day of Audiovisual Heritage Day.
The topic will focus on the challenges of digitising of audiovisual material so that it can be enjoyed by
future generations of Australia”
Deutsches Filminstitute – DIF
Deutsches Filminstitut - DIF has the assignment to systematically collect, preserve and present film.
They celebrate the World Day of Audiovisual Heritage this year by providing insights into the work
of a film archive with two Cinema programmes, including two introductions at the Cinema Caligari
Filmbühne in Wiesbaden.
Programme 1:
Tonbilder from the Deutsches Filminstitut – The Neumayer Collection Part II
Germany 1907-1909, 67 Min, produced by Deutsche Bioscope G.m.b.H. & Alfred Duskes Kinematographen Fabrik.
Tonbilder are synchronous sound films, mass produced in Germany around 1908. Today they are rare
treasures of early German film heritage. The film archive of the Deutsches Filminstitut is preserving
the largest coherent collection of film rolls of this early audiovisual heritage, made for synchronised
presentation with projector and gramophone. This collection, acquired in 1970, dates back to the
Bavarian beer brewer, cinema pioneer and film producer Ludwig Neumayer. The Tonbilder - buoyant
and charming, and at times even suggestive - bear witness to the popular repertoire and performance practises of the lyric theatre during the Kaiserzeit. Highlights of the opera, operetta, revue
and burlesque stages were marketed to a broad audience by the two rising entertainment industries
of the day: moving image and recorded sound.
Thirty-three Tonbilder of the Neumayer collection have been digitised since 2013, and their shellacsoundtracks have been researched. In 2014 a first programme with 14 Tonbilder was exhibited. This
year, 19 more will be presented in celebration of the UNESCO World Day of Audiovisual Heritage.
Caligari Filmbühne, 27.10., 6pm
Introduction: Anke Mebold (Deutsches Filminstitut-DIF)
Programme 2:
Using two films of cinematographer Sepp Allgeier (1895-1968) we will exemplify the individual steps
to meet our mission as we progress from the analogue to the digital age. From our inventory of films
to which we own legal rights, we will present a classic movie in a restored and digitised version: the
mountain film Die Weisse Hölle vom Piz Palü. This will be accompanied by Sepp Allgeier’s short documentary In der Heimat der Welse, a film only recently incoming into our collection.
Germany 1929 (restored 1997), 129 Min, directed by Arnold Franck, G. W. Papst, and written by Arnold
Fanck, Ladislaus Vajda, cinematography by Sepp Allgeier, Richard Angst, Hans Schneeberger, music

In 2005, the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated
each year’s 27 October as the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. It is an important part of a global effort to raise awareness of audiovisual documents as an integral part of national identities. In support
of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, we are presenting one of our recently reconstructed titles,
The Furious Buddha’s Palm (1965).
The Buddha’s Palm film series were very successful at the time, partly because of the mystic element of
the divine martial arts imagination, and partly due to the characters and visual designs. The dramatic
twist of Lung Kim-fei from a nobody to a martial arts hero is an inspiring plot that stayed with many
in their childhood memories. Starting from the fifth episode, screenwriter Szeto On had added a few
outstanding characters, including the super villain, iron-faced Asura (Sek Kin) whose secret weapon
is the Heavenly Crippled-leg move, the Dragon Lady (Josephine Siao Fong-fong) under his control and
Monkey Boy (Connie Chan Po-chu), a cross between man and gorilla. When Asura goes on a killing
spree with the Heavenly Crippled-leg move, Szeto On tactfully keeps Lung Kim-fei from intervening by
having him make a promise not to kill again. After Luk Yu dies in combat, Lung’s friends come forward
to fight one by one, thus continuously shaking Lung’s resolve and creating powerful dramatic conflicts.
The digital Beta we are showing this time is a reconstructed version in which images from a missing
reel were inserted back into an incomplete tinted version. The end product is the restoration of about 5
minutes’ hand-drawn colour scenes that made The Buddha’s Palm all the more powerful looking.

«Noche de vino tinto fue el reflejo de una generación, encarnada por sus personajes, que quería
ser comprendida, con sus problemas distintos a los de generaciones precedentes. No saben dónde
encontrar la evasión a sus problemas. Esta generación no estaba dispuesta a quedarse inmóvil. Esta
generación estalló en todo el mundo en el ‘68. Nunes supo reflejar muy bien en su película las preocupaciones de esta juventud. Podemos decir que es una crónica de la mentalidad de cierta parte de
la gente de la época.» (José Luis Martínez Montalbán)

Cineteca Nacional
Repositorio de las trasformaciones de nuestra cultura y nuestra sociedad, el material audiovisual representa un recurso valioso para comprender mejor las problemáticas pasadas y actuales. Es por ello
que la preservación de estos materiales se ha convertido en una tarea tan compleja como necesaria.
Consiente de la importancia de hacer perdurar estos recursos, la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Educación, la Ciencia y la Cultura (UNESCO), en colaboración con la Federación Internacional de Archivos Fílmicos (FIAF), ha establecido un día dedicado a concienciar a todo el público
sobre la necesidad de tomar medidas urgentes y reconocer la importancia de los documentos audiovisuales como parte integrante de la identidad.
La Cineteca Nacional se suma a esta iniciativa al participar del Día Mundial del Patrimonio Audiovisual 2015 a través del Foro “Lo digital nos une… pero preservemos la película”, un espacio de discusión interactivo que se llevará a cabo este 27 de octubre en la Sala 4, Arcady Boytler.
Dividido por temáticas en dos paneles distintos, en este encuentro abierto al público en general se
darán cita coordinadores de archivos fílmicos y diversos especialistas quienes compartirán su experiencia en torno a los problemas derivados de la creación y conservación de materiales digitalizados.
El Panel 1: “Necesitamos hacer más: Archivos fílmicos y retos tecnológicos”, se enfocará en abordar
las problemáticas implícitas en la conservación de soportes digitales; mientras que el Panel 2: “Lo
digital nos une: Distribución y preservación fílmica” girará en torno a los procesos de manejo de colecciones digitales. En ambos espacios, los invitados contarán con un tiempo para compartir sus experiencias y propuestas. Entre uno y otro panel se dará cabida a una sesión informal de discusión en
la que podrán exponer sus dudas y observaciones todos los asistentes.
Para finalizar las actividades se presentará un programa de proyecciones que ilustran las técnicas y
nuevas medidas en torno a procesos de conservación de material audiovisual. Esta breve selección
incluye el cortometraje Colisión (2014) de Bruno Varela, un fragmento de Pasaporte a Río (1948) de
Daniel Tinayre, y un fragmento de Flor de fango (1941), de Juan J. Ortega.

The National Library of Norway – Music, Film and Broadcasting
In celebration of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, The National Library of Norway is inviting
audiences to a free screening of the newly restored 1936 film Morderen uten ansikt (The Murderer
without a Face) by Leif Sinding. This will be the first screening of the complete film in more than six
Earlier this year, the National Library received a phone call from a bank employee. Two reels of film
had been found in a safe-deposit box. The reels were soon identified as the missing parts from the
negative of the film The Murderer without a Face, which had not been complete since the mid-1940s,
and no release prints are known to be extant either.
Extensive work has been done at the Library to restore and piece the film back together – indeed the
only Norwegian film produced in 1936. The film is the first Norwegian crime film, and the first Norwegian-language adaptation of the popular crime novelist Sven Elvestad who operated under the
pen name Stein Riverton.
The film received mixed reviews upon its release – but for the first time in a very long time, audiences
and film scholars will have the chance to make their own assessment.
While the mystery remains as to how and why parts of the film ended up in a safety-deposit box –
and stayed there for more than sixty years.
The screening will follow a talk between film archivist Bent Kvalvik and crime author Nils Nordberg,
moderated by film critic Guri Kulås.
Starring: Bias Bernhoft, Else Heiberg, Steinar Jøraandstad, David Knudsen.

Le CNC se félicite du classement par l’UNESCO au registre de la Mémoire du monde, des Spectacles
de Pantomimes lumineuses d’Émile Reynaud, dont il a soutenu et instruit le dossier de classement
à la demande de la famille Oudart-Reynaud et en collaboration avec le Národní technické muzeum
(Musée national des techniques) de Prague, de nombreuses cinémathèques, historiens et personnalités du monde du cinéma d’animation.
En 1892, Emile Reynaud (1844-1918) inaugure un nouveau spectacle au Musée Grévin, les Pantomimes lumineuses, mais il ne s’agit pas de théâtre. Il donne à voir pour la première fois au public une
projection d’images animées constituant un véritable récit. Spectacles et projections se déroulent
devant plus de 500 000 spectateurs entre 1892 et 1900. Le succès du cinématographe, puis du cinéma mettent fin aux séances organisées par Emile Reynaud, et condamnent à l’oubli ce dispositif
technique complexe qui permet de mouvoir une bande perforée porteuse d’une succession d’images
finement dessinées et peintes à la main : les Pantomimes lumineuses.

Bosphana Audiovisual resource Center
Since 2007, 27 October has been set by UNESCO as the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage to spotlight
archives institutions, giving them an opportunity to showcase their works in celebration of the world
audiovisual heritage. During one week, Bophana Center and the Institut français du Cambodge are
collaborating to offer, for the first time in Cambodia, public screenings of rare movies on Indochina
which were recently restored by the French CNC (Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée).
This movie selection aims to share the history and memories of the people of Indochina and also to
raise the question of people’s identity under colonialism.
The screenings will start on the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage and will last for one week.
On 27 October, for the opening screening, Bophana Center will welcome Dr. Henri Locard for a lecture
on Indochina; and on 4 November, for the closing screening, Ms. Khuon Vichheka will give a lecture,
“Battambang during WWII”.
National Film Archive of India
National Film Archive of India would be celebrating the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage (WDAVH)
on 27 October in Pune. We have organised a special lecture by Mr Ujwal Nirgudkar on ‘Preservation
of Films: India Perspective’ on that day which will be attended by students of film & media schools
in and around Pune city. We will also be uploading the clips of the lecture on our website as well as
Facebook and Twitter accounts of NFAI.
George Eastman House
George Eastman House is honored to have David Bordwell, the Jacques Ledoux Professor Emeritus of
Film Studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and one of the most authoritative and influential figures in film studies, present the 2015 James Card Memorial Lecture and introduce Policeman.
This recently rediscovered Japanese silent, shot in wonderfully expressive chiaroscuro, evokes both
the tense urban gunplay of an early Hollywood gangster movie and the dark fatalism of later film
noir. In a story of conflicted loyalty and duty, the Tokyo cop Itami is set against his old childhood
friend Tomioka, now a member of a team of gangsters.
In 2005, UNESCO’s General Conference proclaimed 27 October as World Day for Audiovisual Heritage,

The defense and the prosecution have rested and the jury is filing into the jury room to decide if a
young man is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. What begins as an open-and shut-case of
murder soon becomes a detective story that presents a succession of clues creating doubt, and a
mini-drama of each of the jurors’ prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, the accused, and
each other. Based on the play, all of the action takes place on the stage of the jury room.

Kinoteka Na Makedonija
This year’s 27 October was celebrated with the launching of the renovated cinema theater in Kinoteka na Makedonija, technically equipped with a new DCP projector and screen.
The Macedonian Minister of culture, Ms. Kancheska-Milevska opened the event with a message on
the occasion of the UNESCO’s World Day For Audiovisual Heritage in which she emphasized the importance of safeguarding the national and world heritage – sound recordings and moving images –
as they testify and verify the national’s and world’s identities.
A programme of short films and film trailers were screened to illustrate the cinematheque’s DCP collection consisting of digitally restored Macedonian films and recently released national productions
that were deposited in the cinematheque’s archive as DC packages.
During the event that took place in the afternoon, attended by film professionals, archivists and representatives of the media, Kinoteka received a valuable donation for the cinematheque’s museum
– a 9,5 mm Pathé-Baby film projector and a Pathé-Baby amateur camera made in the 1920’s. At the
same ceremony, the Macedonian film and theater actor, Emil Ruben, who celebrates his 60 years on
screen this year, and who donated the projector and the camera to the Kinoteka’s museum, was presented with an award for his contribution to the Macedonian cinema.

The National Film Center
National Film Center celebrated the WDAVH on Saturday, 17 October, with a day-long program on
small gauge and amateur film, commemorating the 50th anniversary of Single 8 and Super 8.
The program consisted of two screenings as “Home Movie Day in Kyobashi,” for the first time at NFC,
and three presentations. Ten films were shown at Cinema 2 in Home Movie Day. Nine of them were
8mm films shooting townscapes of Ginza and Kyobashi, where the building of NFC is located, borrowed from the public. Then Ginza shinkei (1932) from the NFC collection and directed by Shigeji
Ogino, one of pioneers in Japanese amateur filmmaking, was shown.
Three presentations on small gauge and amateur film were made by six speakers at Cinema 1. Kae
Ishihara and Asako Takemori from Film Preservation Society talked about the development of “Home
Movie Day” and its relationship with film preservation movement. After their talk, a US home movie
Our Day (1938) was shown with live piano accompaniment by Mie Yanashita. Shigeo Mizukawa, who
had designed Fuji Film’s 8mm camera series “Fujica Single 8” from 1965 to 1981, spoke vividly of his
experience and the birth and development of Fujica Single 8. Subsequently, Akira Tochigi and Ryo
Ishikawa from NFC, and Hiroyuki Asari, a former guest researcher of NFC, explained NFC’s effort to preserve small gauge and amateur film. NFC has acquired about 1,900 small gauge films, although there
are more than 4,000 films to be inspected and cataloged. Lastly, Ogino’s two other films from NFC collection, Densha ga kido wo hashiru made(1929) and Sen(1975), which had been originally shot in 9.5mm
and 8mm, and was newly blown up to 35mm prints in the same way as Ginza Shinkei, were shown.
Museo Nazionale del Cinema
On the occasion of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, the National Film Museum of Turin is glad
to announce the screening of the restored version of Umberto D., directed by Vittorio De Sica (Italy,
1952) at the Cinema Massimo, 27 October at 20.30.
The film recounts the everyday difficulties and small humiliations of Umberto D., a retired ministry
official in Rome with a meager pension: with scenes of the soup kitchen, the pawnshop, the sale of
his books, the friends who stand back, the landlady who sublets his room. Only the maid Maria is
sympathetic together with his main companion, the little dog, Flaik. Maria, who is also alone, confides to him that she is pregnant and that both of her lovers refuse to take responsibility. In a feverish state, Umberto gets himself admitted to hospital, where he tries to stay as long as possible to
save on his rent. Returning home, he finds renovation works going on in preparation for the landlady’s marriage. He looks for the dog and finds Maria in tears because she has been abandoned by her
two lovers. She tells him that Flaik had escaped after the landlady deliberately left the door open.
Umberto hurries to the dog shelter where he finds Flaik just in time to stop him being put down.
Wandering around the city, he thinks about begging, but his dignity prevents him from doing it.
Deciding to commit suicide, with Flaik in his arms, he walks onto a railroad crossing as the train approaches. Terrorized, the dog runs away. The train goes by while Umberto chases after the dog. The
pair find each other again and we see them playing as they walk away down a lane, while a swarm
of children run toward the camera.
The film has been restored by Cineteca Nazionale and Cineteca di Bologna.
The screening will be introduced by Emi De Sica

Culturarts IVAC
We celebrate the WDAVH by screening 2 titles recently restored in collaboration with (and on the
premises) of another FIAF affiliate, the Filmoteca de la UNAM (México).
Expediciones al Mato Grosso was the title assigned to a bunch of nitrate reels deposited in 1995 by
the niece of Elena Rodríguez Bauzá, a Spanish aristocrat and adventurer. She filmed, together with
her husband, a remote zone of the Amazonic jungle, and the people living there, between Argentina
and Brazil, during various trips from 1931 to 1934. The unedited nitrate reels were donated to the
Filmoteca de Valencia 60 years later. Following its restoration at the Filmoteca de la UNAM, with
the financial support of AECI (Agencia Española de Colaboración Iberoamericana), we are proud to
present these amateur images of a perpetually endangered world.
The other title screened as part of the World Day’s celebration, La Dama Atrevida (The Lady Who
Dared, William C. McGann, 1931) is a perfect example of a very common practice in the filmmaking
of the early 1930s: the shooting of the same film in different languages to satisfy the demand of
wider audiences. To our knowledge, the print rescued and restored by the Filmoteca de Valencia was
the only one surviving.
Date and place: 27 October 2015, 8 pm, Sala Berlanga, La Filmoteca de CulturArts-IVAC, Pza.

Croatian Film Archives (Croatian Cinematheque) celebrated World Day for Audiovisual Heritage 2015 with
the screening of newly restored films of prestigious Croatian film director Ante Babaja. Most known for his
long-feature films, Ante Babaja made equally appreciated short-feature and documentary films.

Film Archives organized the screening of the films Ogledalo, Nesporazum, Lakat (kao takav), Pravda, Jury
and Ljubav on 27 October 2015 in Croatian State Archives. These films are allegorical, satirical tales. They
are experimental in style, made with the use of high-key photography, jump cuts and variations of screen‐
ing speed. The use of mentioned stylistic devices represented a true challenge in restoration of Babaja’s
Before the screening Carmen Lhotka, the Head of Department of film conservation and restoration in Croa‐
tian Film Archives and Tomislav Vujnović, expert for digital restoration from Studio Vizije S.F.T., talked about
the restoration of Babaja’s films and Juraj Kukoč, film archivist, talked about Babaja’s film work.
